Pizza in SW Calgary

I know there are a few posts on pizza but I am looking for a good Pizza in SW Calgary (near the signal hill area). Would like a pizza similar to Karouzo's but not quite as heavy.
Has anyone had any experiences with the following places:
Anton's (near Old Banff Coach Rd)
Vern's (the lite version)
Pocoloco
Spiro's
Brothers Pizza & Donair

I have tried Olive Grove and found it a little too heavy.
Thanks for your help!!

    Spiro's and Brothers are definitely in the "Greek," ie heavy, vein.

      Nothing beats Sophie's pizza near you....it is run by the family who originally opened Spiro's. Their pizza's are Greek in style. I miss them horribly now that I live in the DEEP South! I've never had Karouzo's so I can't compare. Good luck.

        Thanks, will have to try! I am looking for a few good options in the area...any good pizza (it doesn't have to be like Karouzo's - theirs is good though). Just not in the mood for thin crust and we are fed up with the crappy service at Papa John's.

          Sophie's never disappointed me. One time I mentioned their driver was really late on my previous order.....my pizza showed up in 40 mins and was free. I ordered their vegetarian once a week. It was my attempt at health food! LOL

          Cheers.

            Sophie's Spanako (spinach and feta) is one of the best pizzas I've ever had. They're on Richmond Rd next to Co-op with lots of parking, so I just pick it up, much much faster than delivery.
